@Olive12:  That is crazy! I had AT&T for like 2 years with the iphone and that never happened to me and I was too unlimited! But it did recently happen to FBIL. It sucks!!! Sorry that happened to you. Maybe you can connect somewhere through wi-fi so you aren’t using yours?

Bah that sucks! I’m pretty sure if this ever happens to me I’ll be leaving them. For as much as that bill costs me every month, I’ll be damned if they’re gonna limit my “unlimited” usage.

Hahahaha a month or two back I was also in that top 5% lol. We are just that good ;op jk. They slowed our data down alot and said to use wi-fi if we wanted it faster. We are also grandfathered in.

Sprint does this to a friend of mine, and he doesn’t have wi-fi or cable at home so he’s really lost without his phone. I don’t think there’s a carrier that doesn’t do this, and in fact the ones that still offer unlimited data are now putting a little * next to the word “unlimited’ in the ads, and explaining how they throttle.

@fishbone:  You’re right…Verizon is no longer offering their unlimited data plans anymore either and are going to start limiting those who they grandfather in.

At least you only have 5 days left. I’ve heard of people being throttled after like 2 days into their cycle. AT&T’s throttling policy is ridiculous. I thought they actually got rid of it and went with a more “normal” rule about throttling users.
